Is there any proof a roman empire existed? The details are sketchy as fuck to be honest and greatly exaggerated. Not a troll.
>>
>>12359994
a lot of the stories around the greatest leaders are mostly legend, but the existence of the state itself is undoubtable

Only a coping mutterone could make such a retarded thread

lmao, cope sheep. No proof it ever existed bar some fantasy esque story telling the level of Zeus.

I live in a town with roman ruins. Heads of emperors were found in the river. You can dig roman coins out the ground.

No, it was made up by early Christians to give the Jesus a credible backstory.
>>
>>12360343
Anecdotal evidence, was probably planted.

>>12359994
The sheer retardation and lack of reading anything that must of happened to make this thread come into existence is enough to make me leave /hist forever

>>12359994
Yes it existed.
The one people have doubts if it existed or not is the Roman monarchy.
>>
>>12359994
Anon, unironically read a book. Look at carbon dating studies. The amount of effort required to fabricate it grossly outweighs anything to be gained from doing it.

There’s better places for you to use discernment. This is unquestioned. Stop.

All pre-medieval history is just an invention by bored Christian monks.

no. even if it did exist, it wasn't as far back as is taught in schools. there were guns during the time of jesus. most of history is complete fabrication.
>>
Is there any proof that anything before the present moment existed?
>>
>>12359994
proof is unnecessary in historiography
all sources are biased
history is pure narrative

Roman empire was around in the 1400s though.

This appears to be a meta-thread lambasting retarded historical positions like denying the holocaust or the existence of Jesus

History is 1000 years old.

A pope ordered several centuries on the calendar to be skipped that he might live in the end times.

While OP is being slightly disingenuous, anon is not wrong. Rome existed, but how it existed in reality vs the physical evidence is worth drawing attention to and exploring. There are some serious issues with the mainstream story and if you dive in just a little bit, there are many cracks to be found.
>>
>>12362001
KEEP THE DEBATES TO JSTOR PLEASE WE NEED TO PRESENT A UNIFIED FRONT TO THE PLEBS OR ELSE THEY'LL START SAYING WRONG THINGS LIKE THE ROMAN EMPIRE DIDN'T EXIST AND DOUBT THINGS THAT HISTORIANS TOLD THEM HOLY SHIT THANK YOU CHUD

Carbon dating is a pseudo science you're surely not falling for that meme are you?
>>
>>12360449
This is oure troll. No sane person can doubt the existing of rome, even illiterate persons that go around europe will see roughly the same aesthetic in buildings, bridges, aquaduts and concluded easily it was the same civilization
>>
>>12362076
Germany as a nation is a pretty new phenomenon, imma green text but just read more ancient history and the play crusader kings or something

>German territory is defined as the non Roman land at domes greatest extent that is east of the rhine river (current divide between France and Germany)
>Germans never totally conquered by Romans, they make war till end of eestern Roman Empire, identity is defined largely by this at this time.

>fast forward to the 8th century and the the kings of the franks, Charlemagne, is named the “emperor of the Romans” beginning the sequence of events the form the Holy Roman Empire, which is modern day Germany Austria and Switzerland five or take.

>the word Kaiser comes from “Caesar” etc.

As you can see there’s a lot here and it’s very interesting useful history.

I recommend starting with antiquity thru Caesar and the time of Christ. From their western medieval history has the context to make sense.

Was the USSR real?
>>
>>12362190
awesome, thanks. Always wondered where that connection came from.
>>
>>12362203
Is the United States of America "real?"
>>
>>12362179
Any proof the romans were involved in this? Carbon dating is junk science, all evidence of a roman empire is anecdotal and shady at best.
>>
>>12360430
In that case nothing is real. It's all just planted.
>>
>>12362216
No,it was planted.
>>
>>12362204
Np, I appreciate that you asked

>>12359994
Judging by pop history Rome was just the life ofJulius Ceaser and then that was it.

lmao, imagine buying into the official narrative. You people are so easily lead.

I'm not a genius, I just refuse to believe the Roman propaganda. If they were that elaborate an empire they'd at least be a state now and not a city

>An Empire falling and being replaced by successor states is not possible over thousands of years.
The decline in territory of the Roman Empire took a thousand years and until the 20th century and the mass death of monarchism several leaders tried to link their authority to its memory. France and Germany can literally trace their origins to on attempt. It's mentioned in the Quran and the Bible, to deny the Roman Empire existed when we have consistent sources referencing it's size and consistently dated archeological data from across the territory it claimed. Trying to denying it like claiming the Earth is flat using a map made using satellites.

Han Chinese are pure.
>>
>>12363995
So if changs identify as han tell us why were most of your ruling dynasties non-han?
>>
>>12363999
Non Han got cucked, their women married to Han men, rulers succumb to Han culture.
That is why Rome no longer exist but China still does.
>>
>>12364005
Yo didnt answer my question
Why were most of your ruling dynasties non-han?
>>
>>12359994
literal schizophrenia
>>
>>12364015
Barbarians take advantage of dire times, and invade and become rulers by appealing to Mandate of Heaven. They become Sinicised and abandon native culture, give Han their women. They were nothing without Han.
>>
>>12363992
>>12363503
Tell me how Rome was real. And don't say bullshit like carbon dating which has been debunked. Make it short and concise and I and many like me will see the light. Even the origin story of Rome is bollocks. Two baby brothers raised by a Wolf? And I'm the conspiracy theorist? Please.
